Could you offer a home to one of these cats and dogs at the Blue Cross centre in Wherstead?

First up on this week’s list is the lovely Betty, an affectionate girl who was a little nervous when she first came into the centre but is gradually coming out of her shell.

Betty would need to live in a quiet and calm household to help support her in settling into her new home and feeling safe and secure.

She can be re homed with older children who understand her taking time to get know them and settle in and would need to be the only pet in the home.

Meet Bobby, the three-year-old Schnauzer cross Poodle, a sensitive little guy who can be really playful and affectionate when he is confident enough.

He loves playing with his rubber ball and could easily play fetch all day long but also loves a bit of affection and settling on a warm lap to get a bit of fuss now and then.

Bobby could possibly live with another calm dog, but is yet to spend much time with other dogs an could live in a home with older children who understand his needs.

Next on our list is Athina, thought to be 12 years old she can’t wait to find a nice home to finally relax in.

She has quite the story, as originally Athina was rescued and found hundreds of miles away in Greece, and now she finds herself in the care of the Suffolk Blue Cross.

She can live in a home with older children but would need to be the only pet in the home.

Could you give Tiffany a new home?

Meet Tiffany, a beautiful Great Dane cross Mastiff that can’t wait to get lots of affection as everyone at the centre describes her as a big softy.

She loves going out on long walks and having a run in the garden and playing with her favourite tennis ball but equally like to spend time with people and getting lots of fuss.

It would be best if Tiffany is the only pet in the home and would be best to live in a home with older children as she can often forget how big she is.

How about adopting the lovely Sable?

Last but not least is Sable, a very affectionate girl who isn’t short on confidence and will soon be head butting you to get some fuss.

Sable is definitely a people person and doesn’t get on too well with other cats so being the only cat in the home is a must.

Sable can be quite an independent girl and like things on her own terms but she can also be very playful too.

The process to adopt any of these pets is simple and begins with applicants completing a ‘Homefinder’ form.

This can either be completed online or in-house at the Blue Cross centre on Bourne Hill, Wherstead.

The re-homing fees for dogs aged over 16 weeks is £160 and the fee for cats is £65.

Where possible all pets are neutered, micro-chipped and will have had at least their first vaccination before going to new homes.

New owners have the benefit of four weeks of free pet insurance, as well as free behaviour support for the lifetime of their pet.
